Wang's Beef Noodle House8390 Granville Street, Vancouver
Good Beef Noodles
Submitted Wednesday, February 16, 2011 - 1:02am [Dine in]

In short, I enjoy their beef noodles. Whenever I want to eat beef noodles, this is where I come. Honestly though, I haven't tried anything in this restaurant other than their basic beef with thick noodles. It tastes good (I don't have super high standards) and the small size for $6-7 is definitely enough for the average person so I'd say the value is great. Especially comparing to Hong Shifu's in Aberdeen. That place is good, but $11-12 for a bowl of noodles is not really my thing...

Service and ambiance just average, but I don't really care about that in a place like this anyway. It's a very casual place and I'm just here for the noodles.

Two Brothers Chinese Restaurant & Cafe8532 Granville Street, Vancouver
Favorite Hole in the Wall
Submitted Wednesday, February 16, 2011 - 12:51am [Dine in]

Not a famous restaurant and very few reviews for the number of years its been open. However, this is the best Chinese restaurant in terms of value that I have been to in Vancouver and the food is actually good. Compared to those fancy seafood restaurants and chic Taiwanese/bubble tea places, this is a down to earth, homey feeling place. The ambiance is quite tacky but the food is what matters. The dinner for 2 (or 3, or 4, etc) is the best value where you can choose items from the special menu and it comes with an appetizer, soup, huge tub of rice, and a dessert. I don't know if it's because I'm good at ordering, or I'm not picky enough, but I've never been disappointed in any of my choices here and I have been here numerous times.

As for service, you'll have to be more open minded and understanding. I pretty much only come during weekday evenings and every day its the same waitress. She already knows me and my family and is extremely friendly. Watching her deal with other customers, she does a great job of being both friendly and efficient. Quite often there is only one waitress working at a time unless it gets very busy one of the owners and his wife might step in to deliver your food to your table. During lunchtime the waitress is someone else and it is quite busy in there so I can't really speak for that.

Corner 234008 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Average Place for your typical Taiwanese
Submitted Wednesday, February 16, 2011 - 12:33am [Dine in]

I've been to many of the Taiwanese cafes around Vancouver and some in Richmond. I come here quite often because it's convenient and not bad, but I never expect that much out of these types of restaurants because it's more of a cultural and social thing than actual good food or whatnot. These types of restaurants are usually filled with teenagers or those in their twenties.

There's nothing really wrong with this place I guess, but there's nothing particularly special about it either. As with most restaurants, a lot depends on what you order and personal taste. You come in here expecting the best Taiwanese snacks and bubble tea in the world? You're going to be disappointed. You come in here expecting crap, you might be surprised. That being said, there are some things I'd recommend. Obviously, the pork hock is their specialty and I'd say it's pretty good, especially with the sauce, but not cheap. The hot and sour soup is pretty good as well. In summary, I'd say the snack type foods are quite nice but the meal dishes are sub par. I have to agree with another reviewer about the Chicken with Three Spice. Bad value and taste. Also, I would NOT recommend their curry. There was also another chicken dish that I forget the name of that I thought tasted good but the dish was FULL of onions and very little chicken. Definitely wouldn't say it was worth its price but that's characteristic of all Taiwanese cafes.

The attitude of the servers is to get you seated, give you your food, and make sure you're on your way as soon as possible. Because business is good, of course they don't want to lose customers who are too impatient to wait for an empty table. There are enough people working there for the service to be efficient, though its far from personal.
